       We have reced your two Letters and thank you for the attention you have shown to the busyness about the House at Stublick. We are clearly of opinion that it will be right to have a House same size as yours with a Byre & Stable at the Parlour End as you describe and a Toofall for a Dairey & we will send a plan for Messrs Watson & Howdon to make a Computation by but in the mean time that is, as soon as possible we would have their report and computation as to what might be done where the present House at Stublick now is.  We will not give a farthing more than 3d P Yard for winning the Walling Stones & 3d P Fodder for Slates and 2d for Flaggs, of each sort, such as shall be approved & to be <dashed> at the Quarry.         We are

       Your Humble Servants

      Walton & Turner
